Boston “ahts” Festival Returns to North End / Waterfront on Labor Day Weekend … With Fireworks!

Now in its 11th year, the Boston “ahts” Festival has grown into a citywide event right here at Christopher Columbus Park. For 2013, there will be dozens of artist exhibitions, continuous music, theater and poetry performances using both the waterfront stage and the west garden area. The mural kids painting board is always popular as is the Diablo glass blowing demonstration. See the detailed schedule below for the performing arts. Schedule and participant brochure (pdf).
